Native Americans Music and Dance

Dance and the lives of Native Americans has always been intertwined. Whether it be for general entertainment or for ceremony. Many tribes have their own dances and rituals with dance and music which reflect aspects of their beliefs. The dances often have movements within that are an expression of purpose and intent, animals and birds, habitat and other things which are of significance to them. In addition to public dances, there were also private and semi-public dances for healing, prayer, initiation, storytelling, and courting.

Mohawk and Medicine Wheels


The Medicine Wheel, sometimes known as the Sacred Hoop, has been used by generations of various Native American tribes for health and healing. It embodies the Four Directions, as well as Father Sky, Mother Earth, and Spirit Tree—all of which symbolize dimensions of health and the cycles of life.
It represents all of creation, harmony and connections.
It is considered a major symbol of peaceful interaction on Earth (All races of people, the directions, all of the cycles of nature, day and night, seasons, moons, life cycles, and orbits of the moon and planets).

Navajo Mountains, Meanings and Jewellery.....

For the Dine' people  (Navajo) who live on the high desert and mountain Colorado Plateau  (5,000-8,000 ft) in the Four Corner's area of the American Southwest  turquoise is a very symbolically important gem. 

For the Navajo there are four sacred mountains that mark the boundaries of Dine bikeyah (Navajo lands) and two center ones.  Each mountain and cardinal direction with it, has a color associated with it.  Each mountain has a sacred gem, a gender. a time of day, season of the year, period of life and philisophical meaning asscociated with it.
